Kelce appeared on a Philadelphia radio show Wednesday (September 20) morning and addressed his previous comments made during the Thursday Night Football postgame show when Pro Football Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez asked about his brother and "a certain pop star."
"Tony kinda blindsided me with that question on Thursday night and it's hard to answer because I don't really know a lot about what's happening in Travis' love life and I try to like keep his business kind of his business and stay out of that world but, having said that, man, I think he's doing great and I think it's 100% true."
Last Thursday (September 14), the elder Kelce appeared alongside quarterback Jalen Hurts on the Thursday Night Football postgame show after the Eagles' 34-28 win against the Minnesota Vikings and addressed the rumors for the first time.
"I've seen these rumors, I cannot comment. Ever since [the E! reality show] Catching Kelce everybody's been infatuated with Travis' love life. I don't really know what's going on there. I know Trav is having fun and we'll see what happens with whoever he ends up with," Jason Kelce said before laughing.
Last week, a source claiming to have knowledge of the situation told The Messenger.com that the younger Kelce was "quietly hanging out" with Swift recently.
"Taylor and Travis have been quietly hanging out," the source said. "She saw him when she was in NYC a few weeks ago."
Kelce, 33, had previously claimed that he made a bracelet with his phone number on the beads and unsuccessfully attempted to give it to Swift, also 33, when he attended her Eras Tour in July.
"I was disappointed that she doesn't talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings, so I was a little butthurt I didn't get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her," Kelce explained to his brother on their New Heights podcast in July.
Rumors of a potential relationship between Kelce and Swift come months after her breakup with The 1975 singer Matty Healy in May, who she dated after her split from longtime boyfriend Joe Alwyn in April.
Kelce was inactive for the NFL Kickoff Game last Thursday (September 7) night due to a bone bruise. The four-time first-team hadn't previously missed a game since his rookie season in 2013.
Kelce recorded more than 1,000 yards for the seventh consecutive season, a record for the tight end position, while also leading all tight ends in receptions (110) and receiving touchdown (12), before his second career Super Bowl win in February.
